In which Wimbledon crown that he won Sampras played the best?

Wimbledon is approaching and here is a topic about the best grass player of all time; but what about the best performance of the best? I think in 1999 crown he played the best grass tennis of all time especially in the final against Agassi. What do you think?

against agassi
i think even pete said that he felt he brought out his "zone" game

but the most memorable for me is the final against rafter

1994 when he bagelled Goran.

Left-handedness is more than just a physical specialization. It's a state of mind.

1994. He was almost invincible that year before some injuries during the summer. He only lsot one set to Martin and then gave Goran a bagel in the 3rd set of the final. Goran probably served better than Pete for the 1st two sets and yet he was down two sets.

Re: In which Wimbledon crown that he won Sampras played the best?

i was asleep. i have no idea.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: In which Wimbledon crown that he won Sampras played the best?

Fed's better than Sampras on grass
Fed is 1-0 Sampras on grass

He has a better forehand, better backhand and his volleying skill is about same, he can think on his feet and is incredible on half volleys

In terms of Serve they are about par, Sampras having the edge but Fed has great variety with Serve

Re: In which Wimbledon crown that he won Sampras played the best?

i think a 1-0 is not enough to determine who's better on grass. i like roger, but it's unfair for sampras to be compared to him now...

when roger wins more than 7 wimby's or beats pete's 4 straight wimby's then i can probably call him better..

Re: In which Wimbledon crown that he won Sampras played the best?

Fed also has a more complete game than Sampras

but yeah you are right, its unfair to compare- not just on Sampras but Fed. They are from different eras in tennis anyway

I reckon its just best off to compare Fed to the current crop of players he is playing against

Re: In which Wimbledon crown that he won Sampras played the best?

Halba , stop comparing Pete with Roger . They are players in 2 different generations and so you cannot make a valid claim as to which player is more dominant . All I know is that when Pete was playing in his prime no one could beat him . Now all the younger tennis fans know the same thing about Roger . We may never know who is truly the better player as the game has already changed since Pete was around . The variety in the game is lacking and more players are playing one dimensional tennis than ever before . I still reckon that Pete is the best grass court tennis player of all time and no one should ever take that title from him unless someone can win 8 wimbledon titles which is unlikely to happen in the foreseeable future .

Habla , you forget to mention that during their 2001 encounter Pete was coming off the single worst year of his career and almost lost in the second round in 5 sets .
